REQUIRED READING: March

What? It’s March already?! Ah, but time flies so fast, doesn’t it? Especially when you are swamped with work and wedding preparations like me. πŸ˜€ But before we go to this month’s Required Reading, let me first do a recap of last month’s challenge, which I am proud to say I have finished reading way before February ended.

  1. Cupidity: 50 Stupid Things People Do For Love And How To Avoid Them. This book is truly a gem. I’m glad I read it just before I get married. πŸ™‚
  2. Angela’s Ashes. A bittersweet tale of childhood. The very first memoir I ever read. πŸ™‚

So, did I ever accomplish anything for February, reading-wise? Actually, it’s not too difficult to determine the number of books I’ve read last month considering their very small number. A cursory check reveals that I have read, tan-tanaaannn3 books! πŸ˜€ Isn’t that awesome or what? Haha. At least I was able to finish all the 2 books in my February Required Reading list.

I love it that my required readings for the past month both got 5-star ratings from me! I was able to squeeze in A Thousand Country Roads after I was done with my required readings, and it wasΒ  wonderful book to cap my February readings.

Now, let’s go to this month’s Required Reading list. I will not deviate from my usual number since January, which is 2 books, because I do not want to stress myself too much with readings now that it’s only a little more than 2 months before the wedding.

  1. Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh. I bought this book on a whim and I figured this would be a wonderful first-of-summer read. πŸ™‚
  2. The Medusa Plot (39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers #1) by Gordon Korman. I got my copy of this book as a prize for a contest during the 1st Filipino Reader Conference last year. Since I want to read something light and easy this month, I figured this is the best time to read this book.

Both the books in my required reading this month are all kiddie books — perfect to jump start my summer! πŸ™‚

  1. You and Monique are reading YA/Middle Grade books this month! πŸ™‚

    Ah Harriet the Spy. I loved that book. I loved the movie too, and I remember watching the VHS tape that we borrowed from Video City over and over again. I wanted to be like Harriet so much that I had my own notebook too, but I lacked things to observe like she did. Or I was just not paying attention. ^^

    1. To be honest, I just bought Harriet the Spy on a whim, not having any inkling what t is all about, except that the title has a familiar ring to it. Haven’t watched the movie too, so I guess I’m such a loser? Haha! Can’t wait to read this book! πŸ™‚

  2. I haven’t read Harriet the Spy yet, but I’m curious about it. I will keep an eye out for a copy when I go to Book Sale. πŸ˜€

    Happy reading!
